Triumelephant On Safari

Thank you to all our members and customers who made #Bookham#VillageDay2023 such a success. Our stall looked fantastic and received much praise, dressed in the Jungle Jolly Jars and decorations made during our May Monthly Meeting. With the added bonus of our Jumbo Elephant and Rangers we were delighted to win the cup for this year’s On Safari #BestDressedStall and to raise money for the upkeep of Bookham’s Old Barn Hall.

If you are still breathing you can fix it!

There was a really great atmosphere in the hall for our first, very busy meeting of the New Year, as we voted for our Resolutions and welcomed two new members.

Our speaker Steve Sebburn, along with his wife Claire, gave us an incredible insight into what it is like to be part of the Inivictus Games and of his, often harrowing, journey that had led him along that path. His passion and commitment for the Games, for the increased spotlight on mental health and for the hugely positive impact of HRH Prince Harry all shone through in his talk.

With our president Amanda in tears afterwards, we were all touched by his energy, enthusiasm and positivity – ‘If you are still breathing you can fix it’.
